# Help saving data for endings!,How i do this?

I need to save the endings or events that the player did and put a block if that player already completed that or not, something like that,but I can't think of any script to help me with that

So you need to save position where player put a block to not put it there again? BeautifulAuraLover 371 — 15d

You need to use a DataStore to do this. It's more efficient to use a bool instead of a block though.

local DataStoreService = game:GetService("DataStoreService")
local EndingStore = DataStoreService:GetDataStore()
--This function is only for the first time joining--
local SetEndings = function(folder)
local values = {
ExampleEnding = {
Name = "ExampleEnding",
Value = false,
}
}
for _,ending in pairs(values) do
local value = Instance.new("BoolValue",Endings)
value.Name = ending.Name
value.Value = ending.Value
end
end

local key = player.UserId .. "_Endings"
--key is basically a password for the save--
local Endings = Instance.new("Folder",player)
Endings.Name = "Endings"
local Retrieve
--Use a pcall because thats just a normal thing in data stores--
local success,errormessage = pcall(function()
Retrieve = EndingStore:GetAsync(key)
end)
if success then
if Retrieve ~= nil then
--It checks if the data exists because it wont the first time you join the experience--
for _,ending in pairs(Retrieve) do
local value = Instance.new("BoolValue",Endings)
value.Name = ending.Name
value.Value = ending.Value
end
else
SetEndings(Endings)
end
else
warn(errormessage)
end
end)

--now for the saving process--
game.Players.PlayerRemoving:Connect(function(player)
local key = player.UserId .. "_Endings"
--same key as before--
local Endings = player:WaitForChild("Endings")
local List = {}
for _,ending in pairs(Endings) do
local item = {}
item.Name = ending.Name
item.Value = ending.Value
table.insert(List,item)
--it creates a table of values containing the endings the player has achieved before leaving--
end
local Success,errormessage = pcall(function()
EndingStore:SetAsync(key,List)
end)
if Success then
print("Successfully saved endings")
else
warn(errormessage)
end
end)



This is just an example. I haven't tested it, but its basically how to do it. If you want cubes just set a cube if the ending value is true.
